You say to use a 1”pin nail to install light rail molding but what gauge nail?? I am installing Maple light rail
Hey Jennifer, Thank you for your question. We typically recommend using 18 gauge or 23 gauge (pin nailer) when possible to minimize the nail head visibility. For general cabinet assembly, 1″ nails are typically fine to use since there is wood glue that is going to do most of the ‘holding’ work. For trim/molding installation, you’ll likely want to use longer nails, maybe 1-1/2″, just depends on the application. Have a great day!
What did you use to notch out the face frame before installing the light rail? I want to make sure I am not causing damage to the cabinet.
Multiple methods exist, but making the cut with a good, sharp chisel does the trick
Thanks for the video. Will putting this rail molding up stop some of the view of under my cabinets? My contractor installed cabinets but I can see the exposed wood color and corner screws
